As always, Structured Reading offers a systematic, research-based approach for helping students improve their reading comprehension skills. Research in reading improvement consistently confirms that grade-point averages are raised significantly when instruction emphasizes the analytical and critical reading skills used in this book. Our approach in Structured Reading is grounded in psycholinguistic theory, based on the principle that readers improve not by reading about reading, but they learn best from guided, hands-on experience with the reading of complete selections.
